Hi,
I did as the manual suggested to remove the oil pan but there is not enough clearance to get it past the transmission.
PLEASE HELP!
Do you

You will have to remove the front engine mount nuts and raise the front of engine with a jack and wood block. This should give you the clearance to remove the pan.

Have you removed the oil pump and tubing for extra clearance?

Yes, it is.
The oil pan is hitting the transmission. It's close to clearing but not quite.
